La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain

I read about the Atlantic Ocean Mega-tsunami Theory, and watched the BBC video, years ago. Something about it connected me to end times as they would affect the Atlantic seaboard. I always pay attention to the increase in earthquake activity in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, most recently a 5.9. Today I found the following article which really triggered me.

Canary Island La Palma experiences 40 tremors in 48 hours as scientists keep a close eye on its active volcano   Daily Mail - October 10, 2017
The Canary island of La Palma is currently the most volcanically active of the Canary Isles. Last weekend dozens of mini-earthquakes, were recorded. More than 40 tremors were recorded in just 48 hours, all between 1.5 and 2.7 on the Richter scale. However, the earthquakes took place at such depth under the sea that residents on the island did not feel them. They had never recorded a similar swarm since monitoring began on La Palma. This event has been dubbed a seismic swarm. The largest of the tremors, which took place at 1pm on Saturday hit 2.7 on the Richter scale and was located at a depth of 17.4miles. In the following hours, another ten tremors were recorded, taking the total of mini-earthquakes until Tuesday to 50.

Atlantic Ocean Mega-tsunami Theory

In a BBC Horizon program broadcast 12 October 2000, two geologists hypothesized that during a future eruption, the western flank of Cumbre Vieja, could slide into the Atlantic Ocean potentially generating a giant wave which they termed a "megatsunami". The wave would radiate out across the Atlantic and inundate the eastern seaboard of North America including the American, the Caribbean and northern coasts of South America some six to eight hours later.
